Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


IGN Posts Review, Gets Called Out by Dev, Edits Review [Update]

Posted on Thursday, October 27 @ 00:11:22 PST by Heath_Hindman

In my opinion, a reviewer should complete a game and try to experience as much of it as possible. Details of this rule of mine can come later, over tea and cakes, but what brings this up is IGN's review of PixelJunk SideScroller. Maybe the pressure of scowling bosses and quick deadlines made this reviewer crack and take the easy way out -- or rather, easy way through, as the case may be.

The review is here, but it's had some cosmetic surgery following a callout by Q-Games president Dylan Cuthbert, which insisted that the reviewer "rushed through the game on casual". Reviewer Daemon Hatfield initially denied the accusation and insisted he beat the game on Normal difficulty, but Cuthbert countered that if he had done so, the "last epic stage" would have been unlocked, which contradicted Hatfield's review comments. The review then had a portion reviewed, presumably as a sort of damage control.

See below.

Was IGN right or wrong? Does it even matter? Let us know below or on Faceblog and Twittweet or whatever you kids do with your telephones these days.


[Update] Daemon Hatfield has released a blog insisting he's done nothing at all wrong, and is restoring the removed text from his review. He believes Dylan Cuthbert is just upset about his game receiving a low review score.
